Surviving the Runaway Scrape


WHEN THEY LEARNED that General Santa Anna was marching an army towards them, many Texian settlers left their homes and fled east in terror. Thousands of civilians, mostly led by women, made the difficult, dangerous journey known as the Runaway Scrape. Come to the San Jacinto Family Day program to hear real stories of the Runaway Scrape and see if you can make it to safety in the Surviving the Runaway Scrape game. Suitable for kids aged 5 and up; younger children are welcome but will need to have an adult to help. This activity is free with purchase of an adult ticket to the San Jacinto Museum. On San Jacinto Family Day, kids are admitted for free when accompanied by a parent or grandparent.
